Default mugen shock oil and associated oil

I know one is just as good as the other but I dont know how mugen oil would compare to associated shock oil. So what associated oil would mugen 350 oil be equal to? Im thinking 300 mugen oil would be 30wt for associated oil then mugen 350 = 35wt 400 = 40wt. Does anyone know for sure if this is right or if Im wrong?

Wrong. If the oil is rated as Cst like Kyosho, Mugen & a few others, you can swap them out, if they are measured it Wt, it's the companies own version, and 40Wt losi isn't the same as 40Wt associated. Confused yet? There is a chart that shows all the comparisons of oils on TWF8 website, I'll see if I can find the link.

there ya go.
